Historical fiction at it's finest!
From the New York Times bestselling author of Dreamers of the Day, A Thread of Grace, Children of God, and The Sparrow comes the nationally bestselling historical novel about the Wild West, for Mary Doria Russell’s devoted fans and all readers of stylish historical fiction.
Legend of the American frontier Doc Holliday and his unforgettable girlfriend, Kate, take center stage in Mary Doria Russell’s historical novel about the Wild West. Russell has now painted a fresh, imaginative, and historically accurate portrait of Holliday, who has been canonized by folklore and the silver screen. Capturing him at a moment in his life ripe with possibility and hope, rather than the violence and illness that would besiege him later on, Russell chronicles Doc’s and Kate’s lives in Dodge City, Kansas, one memorable summer.
